Permit Granted For Water Plant


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
Of The Wakulla News
The permit for Wakulla
Springs Bottled Water was
approved last week by the
Northwest Florida Water Man-
agement District.
The bottled water company,
owned by Dan and Ruth High,
applied with the water man-
agement district for a permit
to withdraw a maximum of
70,900 gallons daily. The permit
was approved at the district's
office in Midway on Thursday,
Aug. 24.
The water management staff
reported that the impact on


the water table would be mini-
mal. Even when district staff
pumped the company's stain-
less steel wells at full capacity
of 600,000 gallons, it resulted
in a draw-down of less than .1
percent of a foot.
"There's a lot of water down
there," the district's executive
director, Douglas Barr, said.
Still, the matter drew criti-
cism from Madeleine Carr of
Friends of Wakulla Springs
State Park, who said that while
there clearly is no shortage of
water today, what about tomor-
'row?
And to whom does the water


belong?. Carr asked. Is it a local
resource a regional one, a
national, or even international
resource?
In a challenge to the bottled
water company's application,
Carr claimed that there were
numerous errors, including the
name of the company, the name
of the owner of the three par-
cels of land where the company
wants to locate, and in its plans
to tap into Wakulla Springs
State Park's sewer line.
Allison Defoor. an adviser to
the Highs, called the application
problems merely "scrivener's
errors." Defoor also raised an


eyebrow at Carr saying, "I'm
surprised that the Friends of
Wakulla Springs is authorized
to take a stand on a political
issue," and promised to check
with the state Department of
Environmental Protection on
that.
Crystal Wakoa challenged
the premise that the pumping
facility is in the public interest.
"To sell it for private gain is
completely contrary to public
interest." she said. ,
Overuse of water in South
Florida has led to saltwater
intrusion, wells drying up,
sinkholes and other problems,


Wakoa said.
She also noted the "water
war" between Florida, Georgia
and Alabama over the Apala-
chicola River.
"It seems wrong to have the
governor working so hard to
keep water flowing in Apala-
chicola and then have people
turn around and sell the water
for personal gain." she said.
Resident David Jedziniak
said he objected to commercial
use of water so close to the
"nature preserve'" of Wakulla
Springs State Park.
And while the operation may.

After several months of good
water quality samples at Shell
Point Beach and Mash Island
Park. Florida Department of
Health officials have issued
swimming advisories for both
swimming areas.
Mash Island Park had good
water sample results throughout
the spring and early summer.
T, but tests taken July 31, Aug. 7,
Aug. 14 and Aug. 21 noted higher
levels of Enterococcus bacteria
and swimming advisories weie
issued. Fecal coliform bacteria
counts were in the "good" range.
The last swimming advisory at
the Ochlockonee Bay public
park was issued Dec. 26, 2005.
At Shell Point Beach. samples


taken Aug. 7, Aug. 14 and Aug.
21, required an advisory to be
issued. Enterococcus bicte-
ria readings were either at a
"moderate or poor" level. Fecal
coliform level samples came
back "good."
The last advisory at Shell
Point prior to August was May
S and April 17.
State health officials issue
swimming advisories if they
feel the bacteria levels pose
an increased risk of infectious
disease, particularly in suscep-
tible individuals. Increased
rainfall and stormwater runoff
contribute to poor water qual-
ity samples, according to state
officials.


Officials Have Posted A Swimming Advisory For Shell Point


Swimmers Report Rashes AtFlorida


,A number of reports have
been. recorded of swimmers
getting rashes and hives after
swimming at springs in North
Florida. Although a scientific
report has yet to be completed,
algae has been mentioned as a
4 possible culprit.
A spokesman for the state
Department of Environmental
Protection noted that Lyngbya,


algae is being studied as a
possible source of the prob-
lems. The blue-green algae has
filaments like seaweed. Certain
forms of algae have been linked
to rashes; skin ulcers and other
health problems.
Of the 34 reports made to
DEP since the agency began
compiling the information in
1999, more than 20 of those


reports were from Ichetucknee
Springs, with another seven re-
ported incidents from Fanning
Springs.
Wakulla Springs had three
reported incidents, the most
recent of which was on Aug. 11.
An adult male wrote to the park
manager that, upon entering
the water at the swimming area,
"my wrists (and later my arms)


began breaking out in hives."
The swimmer also wrote,
"I have been swimming there
many. many times over the past
20 years (with) no ill effects."
An incident on June 5 was
reported by a 10-year-old boy
who developed a rash over his
entire body while in the swim-
ming area. The response was to
wash. him down with a hose.


Springs
There was also an incident
in May 2005 at Wakulla Springs
in which an adult female came
out of the water complaining of
burning and itching. She was
washed with cold water.
Wakulla Springs Park Man-
ager Sandy Cook deferred ques-
tions to the state Department

County Has

23 Options

For New

Executive
By KEITH BLACKMAR
Of The Wakulla News
Twenty-three applicants sub-
mitted resumes recently hoping
to become the new Wakulla
County Administrator, replacing
Parrish Barwick who resigned
in May.
Interim County Administrator
Joe Blanchard said one candidate
withdrew his, application after
the deadline to apply closed
three weeks ago.
The county commission is
in the process of forming a
committee that will reduce the
number of candidates. A second
elimination phase may also be
required before final interviews
take place, Blanchard said.
Each county commissioner is
being asked to provide a name
of a volunteer to serve on the
interview committee. Blanchard
and Commissioner Brian Langs-
ton have already been named to
the committee.
Eventually, the committee
will provide the county commis-
sion with a list of recommended
candidates for the board to
consider. Commissioners have
not determined how many
candidates they will interview
themselves.
Blanchard said he hopes the
new person is hired by early
2007 so that Blanchard can help
with the transition. He has de-
layed his retirement with' the
county until March in an effort
to make the transition as smooth
as possible.,
"Hopefully, we will' have
someone in place by the first of
the year so I can retire in peace,"
joked Blanchard.
The candidates come from
several states as well as Florida.
There are seven candidates from
Crawfordville and four from Tal-
lahassee.
The candidates include James
Richard Arnold of Tampa; Ronald

An administrative law judge
refused to dismiss the pend-
ing case over the City of Tal-
lahassee's application for its
sprayfield operation permit,
directing the parties instead to
go to mediation.
The City of Tallahassee had
requested that the administra-
tive challenge be dropped since
Mayor John Marks and other city
officials recently acknowledged
evidence of a link between the
farm where sewage effluent is
sprayed and Wakulla Springs.
The city has indicated it will
file an amended application
within six months with some
additional but as yet unde-
termined sewage treatment
plans.
At a hearing at the state Divi-
sion of Administrative Hearings
on Friday, attorneys for Wakulla
County and the Florida Wildlife
Federation argued that dropping
the case would only lead to
more delays by the city and the
state Department of Environ-
mental Protection.
Ron Mowrey, attorney for
Wakulla County, argued that
more than 2 1/2 years has
passed since Tallahassee filed
the application to renew its
sprayfield permit and DEP stud-


ied and approved it. plus the
five months the case has been
pending at DOAH.
"To relinquish the case and
send it back to DEP." Mowrey
said, "this case may flounder
around for another two years
- meantime, every day more
pollution is going into Wakulla
Springs."
Mowrey complained that city
officials have said they "desire"
to do things to address the
problem, but will not make a
commitment.
When a lawyer for Tallahas-
see listed some of the actions
the city has taken to mitigate
the amount of nitrogen going
into the groundwater, such as
removing cattle from the spray
farm and having stopped put-
ting additional fertilizer on the
crops, attorney David Theriaque,
who represents the Florida
Wildlife Federation, asked if
the city would stipulate on the,
record that they would continue
those actions. The city attorney
did not respond.
Administrative Law Judge
T.K. Wetherell II denied the
city's motion to relinquish the
case, and said the case would

County Needs To Tighten
Budgets, Not Raise Taxes
Editor, The News:
On Aug. 15, attended the county's
budget workshop. I observed as each


constitutional officer appeared in front
of the commissioners and pleaded
or suggested that they needed more
taxpayer money in order to run their
departments. I did not hear one con-
stitutional officer say that they had
budgeted well enough not to ask for
an increase in their budget.
Their requests ranged from a need
for additional personnel and their
training, to new vehicles. I was aston-
ished at how their needs were placed
over any thought of who must pay for
these budget increases.
I see what private companies will
do to balance their budgets. The larg-
est ongoing expense is salaries. When
they are over budget, these businesses
cut hiring and in many cases release
employees in order to balance their
budgets,
The shortage is taken up by other
employees or by supervisors or de-
partment heads. The older vehicles
are tuned up, and the thought of new
vehicles is not even put on the budget.
The private sector must make a profit
to stay in business, and have no one to
bail them out if they are over budget.
Constitutional officers are paid a
salary that is many times what the
average taxpayer in Wakulla County
makes, 'and they should take up -the
slack and do the work instead of hir-
ing iew employees. I strongly believe
there are many people in Wakulla
County that have the experience and
desire to fill county positions;
These people are individuals that
have retired from the private sector or
the state and do not need the training,
and would accept the small salaries
or volunteer to do the work and
stay with the county.
Voters, take note of commissioners
who do not get the millage rate down,,
as well as the constitutional officers
who are willing to cut their budgets.
For the ones that work to get our
county government in line with other
counties in Florida (who are lowering
their budgets), then these are the ones
we need to keep in office.
Many say that Wakulla County is
experiencing growth and this will
make up.for .(he needed revenue.
Think again.
Increased population means in-
creased services land more taxes). This
theory is false!
Constitutional officers and depart-
ment heads, please decrease your
budgets so the commissioners can get
the millage rate to 7.52 or below. In this
time of inflation and high gas prices.

meet the bare necessities of day-to-day'
living such as feeding their families

Water Plant Would Harm
Fishing Industry
Editor, The News:
I know everyone is probably tired
of hearing about the bottled water
controversy, but after the article in
last week's paper that pretty much in-
sinuated that the water is better used
shipping it out of our county than just
letting it run into the Gulf, I decided' I
needed to 'say a few things,
I have been a commercial crabber
for over 20 years, and I can remember
20 years ago you could put a crab trap
around the St. Marks River, leave it
there for a year and hardly anything
would growv on it. Now it only takes
a short time before there is growth
on the traps. That tells me because of
development there' is already a decline
in the water quality coming from the


springs.,
The main reason we are having such
a prosperous crab season this year is
because of hurricanes and the rain
they brought last year. I personally
don't know about salinity levels, but
I've heard when there is too much salt
and the salinity is too high, the eggs
that are hatched burn up.
I just wish that someone would
look into this and that other commer-
cial fishermen would realize the effect
this would have on fishery stocks.
I'm no scientist, but I sure do believe
we need every ounce of fresh water to
run into the Gulf that we can get. I've
never been to. Sam's or Wal-Mart and
not seen plenty of water stocked up. If
a time comes that we need more water
for mankind to survive, I could see a
bottling plant being needed, but right
now the crabs, fish, shrimp and oysters
need the fresh water to reproduce.
I would rather take care of our natu-
ral resources now than have to depend
on a hurricane to restock our waters.
Maybe I am wrong, but it sure needs
looking into. ,

Candidate Is 'Great Leader'
Editor, The News:
This letter is in reference to Ray
Gray, a very humble man who always'
gives credit to those who work with
him,.
: He never takes the credit for him-
self. Ray is a great leader and a great
man at getting any job done.
This man has made mountains out
of the molehill budget he has to work
with in this county. I would give you
a list of all his attributes and contribu-
tions to the county, but this newspaper
only has so many pages.
Ray is the man we need to keep
on the school board for our children's
sake and the future.

He Gets The Job Done
Editor, The News:
I would like to thank Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler for getting the
road cleared going to our home. The'
trees were overgrown and becoming
a hazard when trying to get onto East
Ivan Road.
The road is a county-maintained
road and needed some attention for
some time. He did this for us even
though we live in District 2. It doesn't
matter to Dr. Kessler which district you
live in; he is here to serve the county,
Snot a district.
Whenever I've had questions or
comments about issues with our coun-
ty, Dr. Kessler has always taken the
time to listen and followed through
with trying to resolve the matter.
Again, thank you Dr. Kessler, com-
missioner to the citizens of Wakulla
County..

After spending some time
at The Tallahassee Democrat's
conference on Wakulla Springs,
sponsored by The Tallahassee
Democrat, and which was con-
ducted by The Tallahassee Dem-
ocrat and had been aggressively
advertised by The Tallahassee
Democrat with full-page ads
in The Tallahassee Democrat, I
was prepared to say that it was
nothing but shameless self-
promotion by The Tallahassee
Democrat.
Did I mention the conference
was sponsored by The Tallahas-
see Democrat?
And there were lots of Tal-
lahassee Democrat marketing
people running around with
the Tallahassee Democrat news
people at this conference. One
supposes this was an example
of corporate "synergy." To top
if off, the Democrat covered
its own conference, devoting'
several pages to it in Sunday's
paper.

self-congratulations.
It's not that there has never
been a conference to bring
people together about issues
related to Wakulla Springs.
In fact, there have been lots
of meetings, conferences and
get-togethers over the years. A
year or so ago, Wakulla County
Commissioners took trips on
the glass bottom boats with
their counterparts from Leon
County and talked about the
pollution problem.
There was nothing new
at this particular conference,
besides the corporate sponsor-


ship.
And it was many of the same
people who have attended past
conferences about the springs;
from the scientists to the elect-
ed officials to a lot of the people
in the audience.
But, after saying all that, I
will also give the devil his due:
The conference did raise aware-
ness of problems facing Wakulla
Springs maybe not in Wakulla
County or among people in-
volved in local environmental
issues but with the average
residents of Tallahassee and
Leon County.
I still think it was a shame-
less self-promotion, but maybe
in the service of something
larger such as adding to the
awareness of the problem and
having more people concerned
about the future of the springs
- it's forgivable.

Correction
Due to a technical error, a
political ad in the Aug. 24 issue
of The Wakulla News failed to
include a disclaimer for George
N. Green, candidate for county
commission. The disclaimer
should have read, "Political
advertisement paid for and
approved by George N. Green,
Democrat for County Commis-
sion, District 2."

Editor's Note
As you're reading this week's
edition of The Wakulla News,
you likely will notice that some
regular features are missing or
condensed. We'll spare you all
the details, but the bottom line
is we faced a tremendous space
crunch because of a surge in
political advertising as well as
the extra space we are devoting
to election coverage.
We apologize for the incon-
venience and will use better
planning to make sure a similar
situation doesn't occur again.
Thanks for understanding.


Commissioner Vause taught trade
classes at Wakulla High School for 28
years. His students built houses that
were then sold, and with the assis-
tance of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Hock, he
oversaw the award of 21 scholarships
for students.
Many students passed through his
classroom and were able to get jobs
as electricians, carpenters, plumbers
and brick masons. They were inspired
by him to become tradesmen in the
county and region after graduation.
Commissioner Vause has made
improvements to our cotinty roads his
number one goal. A lot of roads have
been paved in all areas of the county
with the help of fellow board member
assistance.
I have known Henry and his fam-
ily for many years and find him to
be a caring person for all the citizens
of Wakulla County. I'm going to sup-
port and vote for Henry and hope on
Sept. 5, you also will vote and support
Henry Vause for your District 2 Com-
missioner.

She Always Gives Her Time
,Editor, The News:
For 38 years I was a part of the
Wakulla County School System as a
teacher and an administrator. During
the last 20 years, one of my respon-
sibilities was the coordination of the
district's Volunteer Program at the
schools,
From the beginning of the volunteer
programs, the schools were blessed to
have individuals that were dedicated
and hard-working. One such person
was Becky Cook. She has always felt
it important to take an active part in
her children's lives in the community
and at school.
Prior to her election' as a school
board member, she gave of her time to
help teachers and administrators with
any task they requested.
The schools knew that Becky was
dependable, sensitive to others and
cheerful as she worked with teachers,
students and other adults involved in
various activities. After she was elected
'to her.position with the school board,
she increased her hours spent in vol-
unteering. Every school in the district
is proud to have Becky on their list of
approved volunteers.
When I was the administrator of
the Pre-K programs, Becky came to the
pre-school to volunteer. I told her of
the need to have an organized music
program, which supported the curricu-
lum. Becky volunteered'to spend Tues-
day and Thursday mornings weekly to
provide music to our children at the
Shadeville and Sopchoppy sites.
Becky correlated her classes with
our units and teachers' needs. But
she didn't stop there. She was always
available if we had special programs.
In fact, I could not imagine having
our graduation ceremonies without
Becky's help.
At times, she even provided audio
equipment and often rearranged her
schedule to meet our needs. Becky
Cook fulfills the motto of the Volunteer
Program Lend a Helping Handl
Becky Cook has faith in the abil-
ity of our children and believes that
schools should serve the children, and
not the other way around. I urge you to
support Becky Cook for School Board
Member, District. 31

Protect Your Own Land
Editor, The News:
SA wonderful opportunity
Sis present in this county right
Snow, and I want to make sure
that a particular sect here hears
:about it. That particular sect is
Sthe protesters of any develop-
ment or the over-develop-
Sment of Wakulla County.
There is a "for sale" sign
located just north of'Highway
98 near Wakulla Middle School
that states there is 456 acres for
sale. What an opportunity to
pool your money together and
save this land.
And when you get, it deeded.
Sto yourselves, you have,the
Right to do anything you want
with it. Let it set for decades,
pay the taxes on it and save it
from destruction. Or is it,really
worth that much to you? I didn't
.'think so.
This is the perfect opportu-
:nity to put your money where
.your mouth is, remembering
That only tax-paying landown-
ers have the right to decide
I~ what they do with their prop-
erty. By buying this property,
you can start saving the county
one subdivision at a time.
These constant complain-
ers always deliberately ignore
Stwo basic facts. Trees were cut

life witnessed a more severe
case of, "I've got mine. You go
and get yours someplace else"
Mashes Sands and Surf Road
are leading the way.
Over 100 empty lots were
there for years "for sale," and
not one local budged to buy

He Helps All Children
Editor, The News:
We are writing this letter in
support of our brother-in-law,
Broward Sapp, who is a can-
didate for the school board in
District 5.
Broward has a heart for kids.
His and Carmen's home has
always been open to our large
family's kids and the. neigh-
borhood's. Our three grown
children absolutely loved com-
ing back to Wakulla County to
visit Grandmother Pelt, but the
first thing they did was to head
down to Aunt Carmen's and
Uncle Broward's house because
they were welcomed with open
arms. He spent countless hours
teaching our kids how to play
golf, basketball, football and,
most of all, good sportsman-
Sship. ,
Broward and Carmen have
spent their entire married lives
(over 31 years) living in Craw-
fordville, anidhe has spent over
2'0 years working in Wakulla
County as a Communication
SEngineer, with Sprint (now
EMBARQ). During this time,
he has seen the impact that
growth is having on our county
.government and infrastructure.
He shares the concerns.many
of us have for the future of our
communities and schools.
SHis involvement in commu-
,nity and school programs for
youth as a volunteer over the
years has served to keep him
abreast of what is and is not
happening with our kids.
Much more could b'e said
about his qualifications. But
perhaps the greatest qualifica;
tion is his character and integ -
Srity, alopg,w,ith the caring.'and
patient attitude e has with


everyone, but most especially
withNthe young.
Ac person who has a genuine
concern for youth will make a
great leader in supporting the
interest of the children of this
county. Broward Sapp is that
person.

Investigate Others
Editor, The News:
This letter is directed to State
Attorney Willie Meggs.
Say it isn't so. Say you won't
play politics with our tax dol-
lars by investigating a Wakulla
County commissioner who
refused to participate in a
trumped-up "emergency" meet-
ing. As you know, four Wakulla
County commissioners want
you to prosecute a commission-
er for not playing along with
them in ousting the longtime
county administrator during a
May 4 "emergency" meeting.
But many of us' believe if any-
one should be prosecuted, it's
the four who spent thousands
of our hard-earned tax dollars
in a meeting that appears to be
illegitimate.
Please look at the facts:
Florida law says, in essence,
officials are obligated to not
attend meetings they know
conflict with the law; if they
do attend; they can be found
guilty of a second-degree mis-
demeanor. By examining the
facts, anyone might ask how
any commissioner could have
lawfully attended this May 4
"emergency" meeting.
First, where was the emer-
gency? Commission Chairman
Maxie Lawhon felt a need to
call an "emergency" meeting on
Tuesday, May 2, within hours
after he had adjourned a regular
commission meeting around
10 p.m. the night before. What
happened between Monday
night and Tuesday morning
that prompted an "emergency"
meeting for Thursday at 9 a.m.
(a time of day when most work-
ing people can't be there).
Governing boards through-
out Florida call emergency.meet-
ings when there are threats to
health, safety and welfare. But
what was this threat? A May
hurricane? Bad water? Terrorist

'In this case, none of the
.'


above. The four commission-
ers met to get rid of the county
administrator, give him nine
months' salary in severance pay,
and ask him to stay on the job
until the end of May, about four
weeks later. An emergency? Not
according to Webster, or any six-
year-old, for that matter,
Second, how reasonable
was the public notice? Florida
law requires reasonable public
notice for public meetings.
The notice of this "emergency"
meeting was posted two days


before the event on the board
outside the county administra-
tion building.
The four commissioners who
want you, Mr. Meggs, to pros-
ecute Commissioner Howard
Kessler argue that he could not
legally abstain from a vote. It is
unequivocal that Commissioner
Kessler did not abstain. A room
full of witnesses can testify to
that. Before any vote was pro-
posed, Howard Kessler stepped
down from the dais and refused
to participate in a meeting he


believed to be wrong legally
wrong, ethically wrong, and just
plain wrong as a responsible
representative of the people of
Wakulla County.
If you want to use our tax
dollars investigating, a group
of us urges you to investigate
the four commissioners who
spent our money on business
that should have been handled
in a regular, well-publicized
meeting.

Commission Candidates Respond To Questions


To help citizens prepare for
the Sept. 5 primary election
The Wakulla News asked each
candidate for county commis
sion to answer three questions
about current issues in our
community.
The candidates were asked
to limit their responses to ap-
proximately 125 words per ques-
tion. Some lengthy responses
have been edited. Here are the
questions and their responses:
(Please note that Larry Tay-
lor, a Republican candidate
for District 2, and incumbent
District 4 Commissioner How-
ard Kessler are not on the
September ballot; They will be
part of the November general
election.)

QUESTION 1. The county's
continued growth is beginning
to place a burden on public ser-
vices, from the Sheriffs office to
the schools to the library --and
every department in between,
Is the county prepared to han-
dle this sustained growth? And
where should the money come
from to pay for these increased
expenses?

DISTRICT 2
S George Green (D)
Based on the information
That I have been able to gather,
and the way local government
is approaching the many issues
that we face. it appears that
Wakulla County is not prepared
to handle the sustained growth
we are experiencing.
S As I see it, we are far behind
with many of the supporting
systems and/or infrastructure
needed for much of the growth,
construction and development
we presently have. And this
does not address additional
projects that have been and
continue to be approved by
the board.
As for financing these in-
creased expenses, first I feel
that the board should examine
very carefully the proposed
budgets for the upcoming year
to determine if reduction may
le possible. Second. a review
of impact fees that are paid by
incoming businesses and devel-'
opers should be made to insure
the amounts paid are appropri-
ate, sufficient and fair.
I would encourage that these
areas be examined prior to
giving any consideration to
increasing the taxes of our
citizens.

LarryTaylor (R)
Based on the budget re-
Squests from our Volunteer Fire
Department and Sheriff's office.
the pressure to properly protect
our citizens is increasing expo-
.nentially w\vith each new home
in the many new residential
neighborhoods. :
These two offices are re-
questing significant budget
increases to handle the needs
of a growing population. There-
fore, as our county continues
to grow, we must implement
properly established impact
fees to help provide some of
the revenue needed to insure
public safety, fire, sewer and
other services our citizens ex-
pect and deserve.
The recent commercial
growth will provide some sales
tax revenue'that had, until now,
been traveling Arorth to the tax
coffers' in Leon County; These
two revenue streams will help
relieve some of the tax burden
on our residents.

Henry Vause (D)
Yes, the county is or will be
prepared to handle these ser-
vices through ad valorem taxes,
'impact fees, building permits.,
sale tax arid others. All these
will increase with growth.

DISTRICT
Sally Gandy (D)
As we all know, in the past
couple of years our property
tax base has increased approxi-
mately one-half billion dollars,


which has provided more ac-
cess to ad valorem tax revenue.
However, we must look beyond
property taxes in the future for
obvious reasons.
We will need, for example,
to look at revenues such as user
fees, tourist tax, impact fees and
utility fees, to name a few.
As our county administration
becomes better staffed, these
other sources of revenue will
be brought before the com-


Mission for adoption. As your
, commissioner, I will whole-
Sheartedly support other sources
of revenue as we seek to lower
Property tax.

Howard Kessler (NPA)
S We've been told when more
people move into Wakulla
County property taxes would
Sgo down. Wakulla's growth is
not paying for itself. Our county
can't handle growth with the
status quo. Growth needs to
pay for itself with impact fees
That would pay for our infra-
structure,
Think of Wakulla County as
a country cub. Anyone wanting
to join knows there are dues
to pay. If newcomers pay their
dues, we can handle planned
growth.
Accountability is needed.
We raised almost 25 percent
more tax dollars in 2005-06 than
in the prior year. How much
additional services have you
received? I have consistently
voted against higher taxes and
will continue to do so, Waste in
government spending needs to
be eliminated. Wakulla County,
needs lower taxes.

DeLacy Peavy (D)
New residents will come to
Wakulla County because of the
same reasons our current resi-
dents have chosen to live here.
This future growth must be
controlled for the protection of
our county and our way of life.
Developers must pay their fair
share when new developments
are placed into service.
Our current infrastructure'
,must be improved, but these
improvements should be an
investment in the future. which
will add to and create a greater
tax base. This would allow us
to lower the ad valorem tax in
the future.
Commercial development
also creates new jobs and re-
sults .in additional tax funds.
These items are good for Wakul-
la County. What is built this
year will.appear in the tax rolls
next year.

SQUESTION 2. Are you satis-
fied with the commission's
recent ruling regarding the
Citizens To Be' Heard section of
board meetings? If so, why was
it necessary? If not, how can it,
be reinstated while keeping
,order in the meetings?

DISTRICT 2
George Green (D)
I am not in agreement
with the ruling regarding the
Citizens to be Heard section of
the board meetings. A citizen
should always have the.right
to address the board, and that
right should not be diminished
or impeded,
While the point has been
.,made that some persons re-
peatedly appear before the
board, it is also possible that
their appearance could be for.
legitimate reasons. Also, there
may be some citizens who wish
to address theboard on certain
issues, but for different reasons
are unable to, Then, sometimes
it may become necessary that
Sone speaks for others.
This section of the meeting'
can be reinstated by a vote of
the board, possibly with the
use of guidelines. The- board
could request that a number of
'citizens work with them to de-
'velop the guidelines that would
:be used to govern this part of
the commission meeting.

Larry Taylor (R)
First, we must raise the level
of decorum and respect in our
county commission meetings.
No one ,.on 'either 'side of
the podium wants to be talked
down to, chastised or berated.
We'd all do well to remember
and live by the Golden Rule.
My concern with the decision to
turn off the cameras during the
"Citizens to be Heard" is that


it appears to create an "equal
access" issue for some of the
residents of our county.
Additionally, it seems that
limiting citizen access could
cause yet another lawsuit'
against the county. However,
while freedom of speech has
not been deprived, as anyone
may still address the,board,
by moving the "Citizens to be
Heard" portion of the meeting
to what may be 10 p.m. or later
(at the end of the meeting), it


discourages our citizens from
speaking freely and actively par-
ticipating in the governmental
process.

Henry Vause (D)
Yes, I am satisfied with this
ruling regarding the Citizens to
be Heard. The meeting was get-
ting out of control. I personally
think that we could develop
a, code of conduct resolution
that everyone could follow.
This would allow us to work
together and resume T.V. cover-
age in the future,,.

DISTRICT 4
Sally Gandy (D)
S Unfortunately, the Citizens
to be Heard part of the com-
mission's agenda delayed.the
county's ability to conduct
business. Its new placement
at the end of the meeting is a
great benefit in terms of getting
through the agenda.
I personally would like to
see it televised, provided those
people-who participate observe
the rules: to speak in a concise
manner for three minutes,' not
.rehash things that have been
voted on by the board, and treat
everyone with respect.
The county commission
meetings are not a town hall
meeting. They are governed by
rules, and both commissioners
and citizens must comply with
those rules.,
Unfortunately, one of our.
commissioners, for his own
reasons; has'used this part of
the agenda to obstruct and cre-
ate gridlock at meetings. This
muststop. ,

Howard Kessler (NPA),
The action not to televise
Citizens to be Heard is wrong,
It deprives the citizens who
can't attend from hearing their
fellow citizens. It takes away
equal access, not only for the
citizens at the meeting, but also
for those at home. .
Thecitizens at the meeting
who speak under Citizens to be
Heard are treated lessiequally-
Sthan those-who are on another
Part of the agenda.:.This board .:
action, niotto televise a specific
part of a public meeting, is un-
American..
Mutual respect and equal
treatment would provide or-,
derly government. They have
good ideas. They should always
be encouraged, not discouraged,
to participate fully in their gov-
ernment.

DeLacy Peavy (D)
Personally, I am not satisfied
with the public input of the
meeting being moved to the
end of the meeting. However,
the board's decision to move
it to the end was not without
good reason.
I would be in favor of mov-
ing it back to the front of the
meeting if a "Code of Conduct"
can be developed and followed.
I am also in favor of it being
televised.
However, the purpose of
the meetings is to conduct the
county's business. A possible
solution would be to limit pub-
lic input to 30 minutes at the
start of the meeting, 3 minutes
per person, on a first-come, first-
served basis. Any remaining
speakers would have to wait
until the county's agenda.items
have been covered.

SQUESTION 3. Of the follow-
ing issues, list the top three in
order of importance and give a
brief sentence or two explain-
ing how you would address
each one:
The viability of a local
water bottling plant
Protection of the Wakulla
Springs watershed
Growth management
Economic development
Youth recreation
Balancing business and
development vs. traffic conges-
tion
Property insurance crisis


Need for area trauma
center

DISTRICT 2
George Green (D)
A. Protection of the Wakulla
Springs watershed: It is my
feeling that the threat we face
with this issue is one of greatest
concern. The magnitude of this
body of water is such that we
cannot afford to delay taking ev-
ery possible step to determine


and correct the problems being
caused here.
We must correct the prob-
lems being caused by the Tal-
lahassee spray fields. We must
'also address the possibility of
problems being caused by the
density of, and use of, septic
tanks in the vicinity of the
springs in Wakulla County.
We must address issues
dealing with drainage and
storm run-off. We must address
the issue of trash and refuge
disposal for our county. These
problems must be corrected
immediately.
B. Growth Management: Our
,growth rate in Wakulla County
has overtaken the sub-systems
that are needed to sustain it.
We must improve and follow
our plan so that we can develop
communities that blend and
function well.
We must improve our road
systems, so that there can be
multiple or alternate routes to
Tallahassee and neighboring
towns. We must improve our
local road paving programs so
as to improve the movement of
traffic locally.
3C. Balancing business and
development vs. traffic conges-
tion: To accomplish this balance
requires extreme planning and
implementation with a strong
desire on the part of'govern-
ment to stay the course. We
must plan, and stay with that
plan.

SLarry Taylor (R)
A. Economic Development:
We are at a critical tipping
point in the growth. f our
county. We must work harder
to attract clean industry. A pro-
ductive way of developing our
county would be to encourage
technology businesses and eco-
tourism.,
B. Balancing business and
development vs. traffic con-
gestion: People are moving to:
Wakulla County every .day, so
growth is inevitable. We must
plan for it while working within
our existing comprehensive

As part of the planning. we
should begin paving rads that:
allow alternate routes into and
away from Crawfordville to al-
low residents some relief from
the traffic on Highway 319.
'C. Protection of the..
Wakulla Springs Watershed:
We must continue to pressure
Tallahassee and Leon County
to fulfill their commitment to
resolve the problem of their
sprayfield dumping nitrates.
into Wakulla Springs. ,


I would also support a reso-
lution to require any new house
built to be equipped with a per-
formance-based septic system if
it is not connected to a county-
wide sewer system. However, it
is clear that sewer connection
for as many residents as pos-
sible is a necessity to protect
our water.

Henry Vause (D)
A. Economic development:
We need to continue to work
on our.tourism because ve have
many good resources. We also
need to bring more business to
our county that will employ our
citizens and bring'in taxes.
B. Protection of the Wakulla
Springs watershed: We have
a wetlands ordinance. We are
asking developers to put in ad-
vanced septic systems to help
prevent waste water from get-
ting into the aquifer, which will
protect Wakulla Springs basin.
Also, we need to continue get-
ting the homes on public sewer
systems.
SC. Youth recreation: I would
like the county to invest in
property. north of. the county
to better serve our kids in that
area. We have recently acquired
land through the school board
for a community center for our
county and look forward to this
achievement.

DISTRICT 4
Sally Gandy (D)
A, Wakulla Springs Water-
shed: I think we should continue
to be aggressive to get the City
of Tallahassee to reduce nitrates
in the southeast sprayfield. We
should also require develop-
ments to maintain buffers from
springs, sinkholes and other
Karst features with a direct con-
nection to the aquifer,
B. Youth Recreation: Our
youth are our future. I will work
with my fellow commissioners
and the school board to make a
community center for our youth
a reality. Thankfully, the school
board has offered a potential
site' I pledgeto move this proj--

C. Economic Development:
Our commercial, districts -are
still almost nonexistent in
Wakulla County. Most of our
residents continue to travel to
Leon County for fine dining and
many other shopping experi-
ences. We need to work toward
a nature-based economic devel-
opment and quit spending all
our money in supporting Leon
County's tax base.


Howard Kessler (NPA)
A. Growth'management. B.
Preservation of our natural re-
sources don't give away our
water. C. Preserving a quality of
life.we can enjoy.
Growth management is the
most critical issue we face be-
cause it affects so much. We
need a plan that is supported by
our citizens, and then we have
to work that plan. The people
have spoken in the visioning
survey. Now their voices need-
to be respected.,
How we grow will affect the
health of the Wakulla Springs
watershed, our quality of life
with respect to traffic and youth
recreation, the type of business-
,es we permit,- insurance rates,
and economic development. It's
all about growth management.

DeLacy Peavy (D)
A. The protection of the
Wakulla Springs watershed
must be one of our top priori-
ties, The spring'is unsurpassed
in its beauty and is truly a gift
from God. It must be protected
at all costs,
SInfrastructure improvements
must be designed and installed'
with the protection of the
springs in mind. Developmeaht
that would directly impact
the springs must be reviewed
meticulously and limited if it
would damage the spring,
'The City of Tallahassee must
do their part in protecting the
watershed, and I pledge that I
will work hand-in-hand with
Tallahassee to this end.
; B. Grow Management is criti-
cal if we are going to preserve
our way of life and our natural
resources. Good growth man-
agement policies are not only
critical for the preservation of
our way of life, but for orderly
economic development and the
elimination of traffic congestion
in the future.
These policies must be bal-
anced and will impact all of
the above areas. Good growth
management policies go hand
in hand with protecting the
Senvir0onrent, the elimination
of, congestion and sound eco-
nomic development. These are
virtually inseparable.
C. Additional youth rec-
reation facilities are sorely
needed by Wakulla County. Our
existing ball parks and facilities
are overloaded and are being
used to 'the maximum level
available. We need additional
facilities and ball parks located
in the northern portion of the
county.

PATIENT
The friends and co-workers
of Sopchoppy resident Debbie
Ingram have opened an account
at Wakulla Bank to receive dona-
tions to help defray some of the
expenses incurred during her
long bout with brain cancer.
Her first surgery was per-
formed at Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital shortly after the
tumor was discovered in May
2005. Afterward, Debbie received
radiation and chemotherapy
treatment that kept the. cancer
in remission until May 2006,
when the same surgery was
again necessary and performed
at Shands Teaching Hospital in
Gainesville.
In mid-July, tests revealed that
the tumor was back yet again
and she returned to Shands for
a third operation. That surgery
was done on Thursday, Aug. 10,
leaving Debbie paralyzed on
her left side and many other
complications..
Donations can be made at
Wakulla Bank's main office
in Crawfordville or any of the
branch locations. All donations
should be directed to the Ben-
efit Account for Debbie Ingram,
dropped off at the bank or
mailed to Wakulla Bank, P.O. Box
610, Crawfordville, FL, 32326.
Donation can also be given
to Debbie's home church, Mt.
Beasor Primitive Baptist. Checks
Should be made to the church
with the Debbie Ingrain Fund
specified. The church's mailing
address is 859 Oak Park Road;
Sopchoppy, FL, 32358.
Debbie worked as a pharmacy
technician at local pharmacies'
for several years before transfer-
ring to the Walgreens on Mahan
Drive in Tallahassee. She com-
muted daily to her job until her
illness forced her to take a leave
of absence in 2005.
Her family, friends, co-work-
ers and employers know her
ag"'ieliibl'e; loyal andidV'tf-f d
person who spent her live serv-
ing others and practicing the

School Board Candidate


To help citizens prepare for
the Sept. 5 primary election,
The Wakulla News asked each
school board candidate to an-
swer three questions about cur-
rent issues in education.
The candidates were asked
to limit their responses to ap-
proximately 125 words per ques-
tion. Some lengthy responses
have been edited. Here are the
questions and their responses:

QUESTION 1. Wakulla Coun-
ty's school system has earned
statewide recognition for ex-
cellence. With that in mind,
what areas of the system still
need work? And how would
you suggest attacking those
problems? ,

DISTRICT 1
Ray Gray
1A. Our graduation rate:
While we are at 86 percent
graduation (fifth in the state),
I want them all to graduate.
We have offered several incen-
tives with many partial and full
scholarships for college. But
because not all students are col-
lege bound, we have teamed up
with "Lively Technical School"
to offer a variety of vocational
programs.
lB. The rate of student popu-
lation growth: We must stay
ahead of the demand for stu-
dent classroom space. As fast as.
Wakulla County is growing, we
need to keep our children in a
good learning environment. We
must continue to find ways to
stay ahead of the curve. With
so many distractions for a stu-
dent at school, we do not need
the classroom to be one more.
While our school board has
been very successful at doing
this, we need to continue the
visioning for future needs.

Ray Smith
I think the lack of com-
munication between teach-
ers, parents and students is
still one of the problems that
needs to be confronted. I feel
that any student that has less
than a C average should have
a mandatory meeting set up
vith theit, eahers and their
parents to discuss why this is
happening.and determine if'
there are any other problems
with the student that need to
be addressed.
These types of meetings
would help us have better com-
munication between teachers
and parents. Teachers are not
babysitters; they are educators,
So let's give them the support
they need and the opportunity
to do their job.

DISTRICT 3
Rebecca Cook
Our mission statement is
"Committed to Success." It
would be impossible to pick out
one area that needs work since
needs change daily.
Our Strategic Plan is de-
signed to daily address the
critical needs of the district
through the following goals:
to enhance and maintain high
levels of student achievement;
to employ and retain highly
Qualified personnel; to ensure
an educational atmosphere that
facilitates effective teaching
and ensures a safe, drug-free,
healthy environment; and to
increase and enhance parental
and community involvement
in our schools. "We will never
compromise excellence, be sat-
isfied with our successes, give
up on a student, or sit down
until the job is, finished."
Education isn't about help-
ing everyone learn how to tread
water, but teaching everyone
how to swim.

Debbie Miles
We need to be more aggres-
sive in our hiring practices.
Many Wakulla graduates return
to work in our school system,
which is good, but the world is


a big place and there are many
highly qualified teachers slip-
ping through our grasp.
I would like to use job fairs,
open door showcases and an
organized Internet campaign
to ensure that we have the ab-
solute finest staff available to
our children.
Additionally, I believe we
should all like to see more male
teachers at the middle and high
school levels. I think we would
all agree that children need the
perspectives of both male and
female role models, and far too
often the male perspective is
under-represented in modern
public schools.

DISTRICT 5
Jerry Evans
I don't know that I believe
we have any major flaws or
weaknesses. A great many of
our areas are very strong, from
maintenance and transporta-
tion to facilities to student
achievement and so on down
the line.
But still, even though there
are so many positives, we're
still pushing and striving for
even more excellence. We can
always do better.
There's certainly room for
improvement in our FCAT
scores as well as in teacher pay
we're finally getting that in
line, but it's still an industry-
wide problem.
One concern I've heard re-
cently has related to the quality
of nutritional value in our el-
ementary school lunches. That
has just come to my attention,
and it is something I plan to
research in the near future.

Broward Sapp
We can be justly proud of
our schools in Wakulla County.
A wonderful team of teachers,
parents and staff deserve credit
for this first-rate system.
Excellence requires vigilance.
To maintain the quality in our
schools, we must address these
problems: declining reading
scores; the "D" rating Wakulla
High received for the second
year in a row; exploding enroll-
-.me' t .brought on by: housing
'developments; and new skills
Sdert.anded by the employment
sector.
We have an excellent school
system, but we need a strategic
plan for the future to keep it
that way. We must focus on
getting parents involved in
their children's educational
development by holding more
workshop community forums
so parents and school board
members can interact on these
important issues.

QUESION 2. Of all the dif-
ferent areas of public service
available, why are you running
for school board?

DISTRICT 1
S Ray Gray
The school board position
has been a perfect match with
my position as Parks and Recre-
ation Director. As the Parks and
Recreation Director, I provide
the recreational needs of, chil-
dren and families. As a school
board member, I've been able
to see them in an educational
setting as well,
Where many children devel-
op their personalities through
sports activities, they may be
unable to express those same
learned traits in a school set-
ting. And vice-versa for our
exceptional student that may
have trouble expressing those
leadership talents on a sports
field. I see both sides of your
child's growth environment,
and when I'm involved in a
parent/teacher conference, you
have someone who knows your
child and their many unrecog-
nized talents.

Ray Smith
Because I care about the edu-

cation of my children and my
grandchildren, and your chil-

Five of my children have
already gone through Wakulla's
school system, and I want
my other two sons and my
grandchildren to be able to go
through the best school system
possible.
I am not afraid to voice my
opinion or fight for what's
right. I want to help find ways

the fifth area improved by more

the fifth area did not improve
by 50 percent, every student in
high school was punished by
dropping the grade.
If this does not sound fair,
let me put it into numbers. If
20 percent of the students in
your child's class got a D and
the rest got a B, every child in
the class received a D.

Ray Smith
Some say that our high
school is almost a C. Doesn't
that also mean that it is also
almost an F?
DOE uses this grading sys-
tem statewide. A low grade lets
us know there are problems
that need to be addressed. Our
elementary and middle schools
maintain high grades, and we
should be proud of them. The
High School's D rating is not
something that just happened.
It is a two-year-old problem,
We have some of the great-
est teachers in the state right
here in Wakulla County, and I
believe there are ways we could
better utilize their knowledge
to help improve FCAT scores
by tutoring students or having
extra classes. Teachers that are
successful in improving FCAT
scores should be rewarded and
recognized.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, Aug. 31, 2006-Page 7,


School
The grade was based solely
on the ninth- and 10th-grade
FCAT scores, and was lowered
because the lowest-scoring 25
percent didn't show enough
learning gains. It doesn't mat-
ter that we score above the state
and national average on the
ACT, or that 80 percent of our
graduates go on to college, or
that we have one of the highest
graduation rates in the state.:
The school board imple-
mented changes last year that
resulted in WHS achieving its
highest score ever on the FCAT.
We returned to a seven-period
day, added mandatory reading
classes, the Reading 180 pro-
gram, and a variety of reading
incentives. With these changes
in place, we expect to make a B
or an.A this year.

Debbie Miles
In Florida, of 380 classified
high schools, 300 earned an
A, B, or C grade. We were not
one of them. That leaves us

Wakulla County, once a com-
munity with few options for
those visiting and spending the
night, will soon have a few more
options for hotels if the Wakulla
County Planning and Zoning
Commission (P and Z) and the
county commission approve two
site plan requests in September
and October.
A revised site plan has been
submitted with a hotel proposal
in Ochlockonee Bay, and a sec-
ond hotel is planned for the
iShell Point community north of
Paradise Village.
The planning commission
will meet to discuss the hotels
and several other projects onr
'Monday, Sept. 11, while county
commissioners will consider the
items on Monday. Oct. 2.

quest and site plan application
for 2.58 acres at 2273 Surf Road

(PUD) from townhouses to a
30-unit hotel and marina. The
three-story hotel will have a
pool. hot tub and restrooms
between the building and the
Ochlockonee River. The build-
ings will have 12,770 square
feet of space. 78 regular parking
spaces and three handicapped
parking spaces.
Booth Properties, William
T. Gaupin. Marsh Harbor Marina,
Inc., and Elliott Varnum and As-.
sociates have submitted a site
plan for a 66-unit resort hotel
on Harbour Point Drive at Shell

ment:will be built near Royster"
Drive and includes a swimming
pool. The property is 11.68 acres
in size.
SA site plan has been sub-
mitted by Annie's Square, LLC
and agent CORAL Investments,
LCC and Kathy Shirah for a .96-
acre development in Century
Park commercial park in Craw-
fordville. The applicant is seek-
ing'office space for an unnamed
business.
A final plat application has
been: submitted by D & R Ven-
tures, LLC and Rory Shottenfeld
for the Osceola Green commer-
cial subdivision on the east side
of U,S. Highway 319, north of
Rainbow Drive. The 5.6-acre de-
velopment will have commercial
lots of one-half acre.
Ed Brimner, R.H. and Bev-
erly Carter and Katrina White
have submitted a rezoning ap-
plication from C-2 commercial
and RR-1 residential to just C-2
on three acres at 3238 and 3278

south of the Wakulla County
Courthouse. The applicants are
seeking the change to establish
a commercial office or a general
commercial operation.
Advantage Marine. LLC is
seeking a rezoning from RR-1

mercial on 1.29 acres on the east
side of Coastal Highway, north

Addition subdivision near Craw-
fordville.
The applicant is seeking a set-


earned a D or F grade (Florida
DOE; School Grades by School
Type 2006). We can do better
than that.
The grading system we are
complaining about at the high
school level has brought us
great publicity and recognition
at the elementary and middle
school levels, and we are not
upset about that. The grading
system is not perfect nothing
is but it is fair.
The school board should
strive to improve the learning
environment at WHS. I believe,
our new principal and. his staff
are doing that, and I believe
we will be pleasantly surprised
when our 2007 grades are re-
leased.

DISTRICT 5
Jerry Evans
That grade is not fair be-
cause the reality is that our high
school has made some great
strides in just the past year. If
we were to look at those accom-


back variance of approximately
seven feet due to a home being
built too close to a property
line.

plishments and single them
out, I; don't know how many
schools would have been able
to do all that in one year.
But the grade is the only
thing people will see. If I could
make an analogy, it would be
like looking at a baseball team.
This team has the best play-
ers and coaches you can find
anywhere. They practice and
work hard and they all work
well'together.
Then they go out and start
winning games; they're beat-
ing everybody. Then they get
to the national championship
game and play the best game
they've ever played they out-
score their opponent and win
the game.
But while they're celebrat-


ing, some officials come over
and take the win away because
there were two kids on the
bench who didn't participate
and didn't play well. Because
of those kids not trying, they're
going to take the victory away.
That's what this, test has
done. It has taken all the recog-
nition from our top performers
and focused it all on a small
minority who aren't interested
in improving.

Broward Sapp
I want all schools rated an
"A," unlike Wakulla High (rated
"D" for two straight years).
There needs to be a strategic
plan for school needs so we can
prepare and avoid surprises that
lead to unnecessary crises.


As long as the state supports
the FCAT for school evalua-
tions, we will have to abide by
the legal guidelines, like it or
not. With reading and compre-
hension scores on the decline,
the school board must provide
opportunities for teachers to
enhance their skills.

Some students will not con-

to help them compete in the

Homecoming Change
Wakulla High School Principal Mike
Crouch plans to honor Wakulla War Eagle
football players Friday, Nov. 3, with a
Senior Night as WHS plays the Chiles
Timberwolves in the final regular-season
game of 2006.
The 2006 Homecoming celebration was
originally scheduled for the Chiles game.
Homecoming sponsor Christa Tucker said
the school has moved the crowning of the
Homecoming king and queen to Friday,,
Sept. 22, when the War Eagles host the
Pensacola Woodham Titans at Reynolds
Stadium. ,
Sales of spirit shirts have begun at the
school, and the homecoming court will be
voted on during the week of Sept. 5.
The court will be announced the week of
Sept. 11. A dance is planned Sept. 16, while
a bonfire will be held Thursday, Sept. 21.
A parade and pep rally are planned for the
afternoon of Sept. 22.


Session Nears End
Wakulla County Schools will be closed
on Monday, Sept. 4, in observance of the
Labor Day holiday. Students are close to
the end of the first grading period as the
first six-week session of school ends on
Friday, Sept. 22.
Students also will be out of school on
Monday, Sept. 25, which is a teacher plan-
ning day. Report cards from the first grad-
ing period will be released on Monday,
Oct. 2.
Friday, Oct. 13, is the annual Staff Devel-
opment Day, and students will be out of the
classrooms for the day while teachers take
part in other education-related activities.

Piano Lessons Offered
A set of 12 lessons are being offered to
introduce children and adults to music and
the piano, The lessons are designed for
individuals with no keyboard experience
and will be taught on a one-on-one basis.


Local teachers will be identified for those

lessons conclude.
The instructor is Luis Gonzalez, a gradu-
ate student in music whose piano recitals
and work with children have brought him
notoriety at Florida State University and
elsewhere,.
The 12 lessons will provide students an
opportunity to learn how to tead music, de-
velop the fundamentals of piano technique,
play and sing short songs, and improvise
two- or four-bar melodies over a given
harmony. The lessons will conclude with a
student recital for parents and friends.
Lessons will last 30 minutes for elemen-
tary school students and 45 minutes for
older individuals. The cost is $180 for the
shorter lessons and $240 for longer lessons.
There is also a small cost for the music.
Lessons will be held on Sunday after-
noons at Wakulla Presbyterian Chprch. For
more information, call Albert Oosterhof at
926-8962.


SWHS Students


The Wakulla community.
came together Thursday, Aug.
23, to put together and distrib-
ute donations for the Our Kids
Count school supply drive.
Items were collected at local
,businesses with the help of the
Optimist Club, Comcast Cable
and The Wakulla News. Every.
item was sorted with care and
picked up and distributed by
guidance councilors to the kids
that needed them most.
According to Jo Ann Daniels,
principal of Wakulla Middle
School, the midway point of the
Our Kids Count school supply
drive brings hopeful news.
"We have done more than
expected at this point, but still
need supplies for another 25
to 50 children here in Wakulla
County," she said.
So far, the drive has gathered
42 backpacks, 339 boxes of


crayons, 67 boxes of markers,
87 bottles of glue, 220 folders,
157 packs of pencils, 75 packs
of pens, 111 packs of loose
leaf paper, 71 spiral notebooks;
23 calculators, and 43 pairs of
scissors.
"For the teachers, we have
gathered antibacterial soap, tis-
sues and wipes, but are really
lacking in sanitary items and
could use additional donations
for the class rooms," said Lisa
Council of the Coastal Optimist
Club.
The Our Kids Count school
supply drive will continue un-
til Labor Day. Drop donations
off at any Wakulla Bank, The
Wakulla News, Comcast, Sher-
riff's Department, Ameris Bank,

War Eagles Drop NFC In Shootout, 47-27


: During the preseason,
Wakulla War Eagles football
coach Scott Klees predicted that
his experienced defense would
have to carry his young offense
for a few games until the of-
Sfense and quarterback Cory
Eddinger got more comfortable
with varsity action.
But somebody forgot to tell
the offense. The unit dominat-
ed the second half in defeating
North Florida Christian, 47-27,
in the season opener for both
teams Friday, Aug. 25, at Reyn-
olds Stadium.
Running back Dion Bry-
ant was asked to increase his
workload following a hip injury
to Xavier Blocker. And Bryant
nearly scored more points him-
self than. North Florida Chris-
tian did as he found the end
zone four times twice rushing,
pnce receiving and once on a
ate-game kickoff return.
Kendrick Hall, C.J. Holton
and Tyrell Gavin had the other
War Eagle touchdowns. Kicker
Troy Walker added five of seven
extra points.
SIn his first varsity action
during the regular season, Ed-
dinger threw for 162 yards as
he completed 8 of 17 passes
.with two touchdowns and no
interceptions.


Dion Bryant


coach Klees said Wakulla's
conditioning and speed wore
North Florida Christian down
after the visiting Eagles took
a 10-7 lead in the first half.
Wakulla led 21-13 at halftime
before pouring it on in the later
stages of the contest.
"We just wore them down,"
Klees said. "Coach T (Chris To-
maini) does a great job getting
the kids in shape and we played
everybody."
Klees said he expected a low-
scoring game before his offense
caught fiie and nearly broke the'
50-point barrier.
"We're very pleased with the


C.J. Holton


offense," he said. "We're disap-
pointed in the defense. We
didn't get what we were expect-
ing not enough stops."
The young Wakulla offensive
line gave the coaching staff
reason to be proud,
"The offensive line played
unbelievable," Klees added.
"Nobody graded out below an
80."
Center Josh Langston graded
out at 93 percent and was
named co-offensive player of
the game with Dion Bryant.
Bryant had touchdown runs of
seven and 11 yards, a 15-yard
pass reception from Eddinger


and an 80-yard kickoff return.
Bryant rushed six times for 49
yards.
Tyrell Gavin caught five
passes for 96 yards and a touch-
down as Klees was forced to
rebuild the receiving corps due
to graduation last year. Holton
had 62 yards rushing while Hall
added 42 and Kendell Gavin
rushed for 23.
Free safety C.J. Holton in-
tercepted a pass and had 10
tackles to be named defensive
player of the game.Linebacker
' arrion Wilson was recognized
as the defensive knock-'em back
award winner for hard hitting'

ATTENTION STUDENTS, PARENTS & VOTERS!
Groom Your Child to be a Career Wakulla County School Board
Member! They meet about once a month for approximately 1 hour, so
you could also hold down a full time job! Do you need a degree to be a
Board Member? Goodness No! All you have to be able to say is one of the
following: "I move to accept item #1", "I move to second that", when asked
if you approve... just say, "I", but the best one is... "I move to adjourn"!
It sounds like our incumbent School Board is "Stale". The 3 members
up for re-election are good human beings, but they have served a
total of 32 years! The President of the U.S. can only serve 8 years!
We need to limit the time a county commissioner or a school board
member can serve to two (four-year) terms. This would involve more
people from our community with fresh ideas. It's Time for a Change!
Yes, I am hung up on money. I would like to see MORE money in
the Classrooms and Less in Administration!

COAST GUARD


,AUXILIARY REPORTS

By Jim McGill


Bubba moved last week be-
cause he heard that the roads
surrounding your home are
where the majority of car crash-
es happen. I have been reading
the Florida Fish and Wildlife's
"2005 Accident Statistical Re-
port," and since I do not see a
;movie being made from this 86-
page book, I will give you some
statistical high points.
Bubba, this does not mean
that you should give up fish-
ing, but that you might want,
to think about how other folks
messed up last year.
Florida is number one in a
lot of things, but being num-
ber one for maritime accidents
is not an award we want to ac-
cept. California has 603 report-.
able accidents, putting it second
to Florida's 714 for 2005. We're
number ,one (but we do have
more coastline)l
Under Florida Law, report-
able accidents are those 'acci-
dents that involve a death of
any person, the disappearance
6f any person under circum-
stances that indicate possible
death or injury, personal injury
requiring medical treatment
beyond immediate first aid, or
damage to any vessel or other
property with a minimum of
S$2,000 aggregate property dam-
age. The limit used to be $500,
but Florida changed the report-
able threshold in 2004.
An economist once said, "The
difference between a recession
and a depression depends on if
you are the one without a job."
Wakulla County had two report-
able accidents for 2005. Just
because we are a drop in the
ocean, the probability of being
in one of these statistics may
depend upon what you know.
Also, remember that for each
reported accident, there are
many non-reported accidents
that can still hurt you, your
crew, or your boat.
Florida registered over one
million boats in 2005. There was
an evil 666 reportable accidents
statewide. Wakulla County had
4,569 boats registered. Wakulla
County had one fatality, and
a the state of Florida had 80 fa-
talities in 69 accidents. Florida
has not had so many fatalities
since 1995.
Drowning was the leading

In Florida, those age 21 and
under are required to have a

ered by an engine of 10 horse-
power or greater (induding

to receive a boating safety ID
card, those 21 years old'and
younger must take a boating
safely course given by the Coast
Guard Auxiliary or directly on-
line at http://boat-ed.com/fl/'

Bubba;that's all the numbers
I can handle this week. You can
put your shoes back on and stop
counting on your toes now.

Things were quiet this week-
end at Shell Point. Saturday, Mi-
chael Longanecker worked on
Shell Point Radio. Todd Acker
and Richie Calhoun were on
safety patrol. There were no
problems noted. The weather
was hot and humid (again).

Lewis Found Guilty In Abduction


There was little drama when
a jury returned a guilty verdict
in the trial of Raymond Lewis
last week,
Lewis is the. man accused of
abducting a 12-year-old girl from
her Panacea home in September
2004 and taking her to Georgia.
After four days, Lewis was cap-
tured on the side of the road
with the victim.
After two days of testimony,
it took the jury less than an
hour and a half to return its
verdict on three counts of lewd
or lascivious battery, one count
of lewd or lascivious molesta-
tion, and kidnapping.
Lewis is set for sentencing by
Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls
on Sept. 14, and could face a
maximum of life in prison plus
60 years.


Now CoAstrncI A Mauage
Ai, M. AL.i,


Assistant State Attorney
Jackie Fulford, who prosecuted
the case, showed that Lewis had
been having a sexual relation-
ship with the girl since January
2004.
The girl believed she was in
love with Lewis, and she left her
family home in the middle of
the night to catch a Greyhound
bus with Lewis, from Tallahas-
see to Atlanta.
Defense attorney Lynn Alan
Thompson, faced with a difficult
case against his client, sought
to minimize what Lewis did,
noting that the girl believed
she was in love with Lewis and
that, once caught, Lewis gave
up easily.
The girl's father also wass
sentenced recently to 60 years
in prison for a relationship with

her best friend. It was Lewis
who tipped off law enforce-
ment about it, shortly after he
was taken into custody by FBI
agents, and he was a witness
against the father in the moles-
tation trial.
Lewis and the girl's father
had been good friends who
worked together at several dif-
ferent jobs over a number of
years. They fished together and
camped together.
Lewis testified in the father's
trial that he went to a Wal-Mart
with the father to buy a neck-
lace for the 12-year-old girl he
was molesting.
Asked at the father's trial if
the father was aware of Lewis'
relationship with the daughter,
Lewis answered: "He had to
be."

At capital City Bank, we believe strongly in working together with residents to ensure that Wakulla
County becomes an.even better place to call home.
That's why, when the Wakulla County School System needed to purchase land for a future school
site, Capital City appreciated the opportunity to help.
For us, Wakulla County is not just a place where our associates work, it's where they live and raise
their families. We all have a stake in our future and Capital City Bank is honored to help the Wakulla
County School System build a stronger community. www.ccbg.com

Dear neighbor and friend,

Over this summer campaign, my family and I have met many of you
and had the honor of coming into your homes, businesses, and places
of worship to discuss concerns you have about our schools.

We live in a wonderful community, full of good people and great prom-
ise. We neei a first rate school system to prepare our kids for the
challenges they \v ill face far more daunting than anything we had to
face. They must compete in the world economy and their skills must
Se i'fI% ery'best'. Ndt all of tiem'wilt chbose Eg;ofg anf for those w',i
don't, solid vocational training options must be available rfiTt le-aid -,
good jobs and sound financial security for them and the families they
will raise here in Wakulla County. We once had a first rate vocational
program and it was phased out I intend to bring it back.

I want all Wakulla schools rated "A" instead of Wakulla High slid-
ing down to a "D" school as it has for the last two years. I want to see
a strategic plan for future school needs so we can prepare and avoid
surprises that lead to unnecessary crises a plan that allocates tax dol-
lars with an eye for investment in the students and the teachers and not
more for administrators and extra layers of cost.'

Parents, pupils and teachers are the three most important partners in
making our schools successful I want to promote more involvement
from each group, and I want to see the School Board take its meetings
out into the community, into the neighborhoods to listen to the people
and foster ownership in their school system. We are only as good as
ithe people who participate, and we need to reach out arid get the com-
munity involved.

As most of you know, I am a long time golf teacher and coach. Some
have even used it against me, saying "Oh, he's just a golf teacher!" I
have learned many things about the needs of youth and the challenges
of work and family through golf. One cannot play a good round of
golf unless they are physically fit. Our children require a good fitness
program to fight obesity and instill good health, encourage teamwork
among peers, and to increase focus in the classroom. In golf you also
have your eye on the ball same with the school system. I will focus
on teacher growth, productive extra-curricular activities, mentoring,
and much needed vocational school-to-work programs. Golf has also
shown me the importance of teamwork. I will diligently work with my
colleagues to improve our school system (to avoid the sand traps and
stay out of the rough). Finally the game of golf has taught me the thrill
and accomplishment of a hole in one! And that is what I intend to do as
your District Five Representative on the School Board. I believe in our
kids my kids and grandkids are among them and I know these next
four years will be a time of trial for our schools brought on by growth
and development in this county.

Our schools will be under pressure to accommodate new students, pro-
vide new skills, and recruit/retain quality teachers. I will work hard, to
involve and inform you about your school system and give you a say
in what happens it's the only way to make it better.

I need your vote and your support to set the bar high and fight to main-
tain a first class educational system for Wakulla County. Tee off is next
Tuesday, September 5 please take time to vote it is a sacred privilege
we have as Americans. Use it. And thank you all for the courtesies and
blessings you have given to me and my family during this campaign.

Water Rashes


not deplete the aquifer, Jedziniak
said, he worried about the im-
pact of increased traffic and trash
on the area.
"I have no objection to the
business," he said. "But do it
somewhere else.".
Linda Jamison of the Big Bend
Chapter of the Sierra Club called
the issue a Pandora's box.
"What is happening here is a
small blip on the radar," Jamison
said. But, comparing the aquifer
to a bottle of soda, she asked
what happens when everybody
starts putting in their straws.
"The Water belongs to all of
us," she said.
Defoor told the water board'
that 'the issue is an emotional
one, but pointed out that the
district's staff had determined
the impact on water was "un-
discernable."
"The bottom line," Defoor
said, "is that water is the next oil.
If that's true, then North Florida
has a lot of resources."
The matter also defines
whether the economic future
for Wakulla is merely to be a
place of low-cost housing for
Leon Courity, Defoor said.
Before the vote of the water-
board, member Joyce Estes of
Eastpoiht said the district has
worked to insure that the matter
is well-studied.
The water management dis-
trict recently' changed its rules
for bottled water plants, Estes,
noted, creating more restric-
tiois.
With the permit set for only
2 1/2 years, Estes said, it will
provide time to see to whom the
water is being sold.
"We have a stop-gap in place,"
Estes said, "so that if this is the
wrong thing down the road, we
can stop it."
The vote passed without dis-
sent by the seven members of
the water management district
who were at the meeting.

DEP Press Secretary Anthony
De Luise that the reports were
only a small fraction of visitors
to the state parks.
"We take these incidents very
seriously," De Luise said, "but
keep in mind these reports ac-
count for a very small number
of visitors who swim at the
parks."
During the years covered
by the reports, which De Luise
referred to as "anecdotal sum-
maries," he noted that there
had been more than 11 million
park visitors.
"There has been talk of al-
gae," De Luise said, "but there's
no evidence at this point."
Some algae, such as Karenia


brevis, can be harmful. K. bre-
vis is the marine algae whose
blooms are the cause of red tide,
which have been responsible
for fish kills and respiratory
irritation.
There have also been reports
of blooms of marine cyanobacte-
ria that occur along with red tide
in coastal waters. That bacteria
is non-toxic.
The state Department of
Health has an ongoing, study
and is awaiting final results.
Other springs in north Flor-
ida also reported incidents,
almost all of which were similar
in nature with swimmers suf-
fering from a rash and itching
and burning as they came out
of the water,

The First District Court of
ppels recently sent the Mu-
icipal Services Benefit Units
vlSBU) lawsuit back to Circuit
Uldge N. Sanders Sauls to look
, the proposed settlement.
The notice from the appeal
9ourt, which was received on
ilonday. Aug. 21, gives Judge
Sauls jurisdiction over the case,
for 60 days.
; The lawsuit was filed overt
ecial assessments on prop-
rty for ambulance, service.
ach parcel in the county was
charged $35. Such special assess-
ents were found by the state
supreme Court to be unconstitu-
nal because property derives
o benefit from ambulance
service. (The high court upheld
4SBUs for fire service.)
A lawsuit was filed by several
Vakulla residents asking the
court to find the ambulance
SSBU unconstitutional and to
order a refund. The complaint
so sought for the case to be
designated as a class action
wsuit;
Judge Sauls found the MSBU
unconstitutional, but added that
e county had approved it in
ood faith and did not order a
refund. The residents appealed,
and DCA sent the case back
for the judge to determine if a
fund was due.
( On Aug. 7, the county com-
mission approved a $685,000
settlement that amounts to
roughly $10 for each parcel over


a notice to appear incourt for
underage drinking.
SThe Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office received 740 calls for ser-
vice during the past week.

people who are reported as

umn have not yet been to trial
and are therefore innocent until
proven guilty.


four years, as well as attorneys'
fees.
It's not known when Judge
Sauls will review the proposed
settlement since neither side
has filed a motion with the'
court for him to consider.
In other court matters:
A man who kicked out the
window of a deputy's patrol car
and was shot with a taser was
in misdemeanor court on Friday,
Aug. 18, to plea to charges of
disorderly conduct and criminal
mischief.
James Gable, 37, pleaded no
contest to the charges. County
Judge Jill Walker sentenced
Gable to serve six months pro-
bation, including 20 days in the
Wakulla County Jail with credit
for two days served, pay $190 in
court costs, and make restitution
to the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office for $110 to pay for the
replacement of the window.
A man facing a prison
term ranging from 17 years to
75 years for three counts of
lewd and lascivious molestation
entered a plea of no. contest to
the charges without any agreed-
upon sentence.
Tremaine Bell, 23, who is
mentally challenged, is accused
of sexually assaulting another
mentally challenged victim. His
attorney, Chuck Hobbs, asked
the court on Thursday, Aug. 17,
to order a pre-sentence investi-
gation, and sentencing by Judge
Sauls was set for October.

Speaker Reaches WHS
Award-winning speaker and
retired Mississippi State Patrol
Captain Pete Collins spoke to
more than 1,300 Wakulla High
School students Friday, Aug.
25. Captain Collins addressed
the teenage audience about


the dangers of drinking and
driving.
Collins was contracted by the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation Safety Office and
a request by Wakulla County
Sheriff David Harvey.
"Many students were visibly
moved by the presentation at
the assembly," said the sheriff.
According to WHS School
Resource Officer Deputy Billy
Jones, numerous students came
to him praising the efforts
of the sheriff's office, school
administration and local busi-


nesses for bringing the message
to the school. The message
was clear: many young people
are hurt or killed each year by
drinking and driving.
The event was sponsored
by the state DOT, Jones Plumb-
ing, Jaworski Trucking, Duncan
Trucking, in memory of the
late Victor A. Pandolfi, and the
Wakulla Collision Center.
Sheriff Harvey served as
the master of ceremonies and
stated that the program "is just
what our students needed to
hear."

Fire Rescue Report


This past week, your volun-
teer fire rescue departments
responded to three vehicle
crashes, eight fire alarms and 16
first responder (medical) calls.

Check Extinguishers
Inspect fire extinguishers at
least once a month (more often
in severe environments).
Fire extinguisher mainte-
nance is important for every-
one's safety.
You must ensure that:
The extinguisher is not
blocked by equipment, coats
or other objects that could
interfere with access in an
emergency.
*, The pressure is at the'
recommended level. On extin-


guishers equipped with a gauge,
the needle should be in the
green zone not too high and
not too low.
The nozzle or other parts
are not hindered in any way.
The pin and tamper seal (if
it has one) are intact.
There are no dents, leaks,
rust, chemical deposits and/or
other signs of abuse/wear. Wipe
off any corrosive chemicals, oil,
gunk, etc., that may have depos-
ited on the extinguisher.
Some manufacturers recom-
mend shaking your dry chemi-
cal extinguishers once a month
to prevent the powder from
setting/packing.
Fire extinguishers should
be 'pressure-tested (a. process

a number of years to ensure
that the cylinder is safe to use.
Consult your owner's manual,
extinguisher label or manufac-
turer to see when yours may
need such testing.
If the extinguisher is dam-
aged or needs recharging, re-
place it immediately.
IMPORTANT: Recharge all
extinguishers immediately after
use regardless of how much
they were used.

Inspect Or Maintain?
What is the difference, be-
tween a fire extinguisher in-
spection and fire extinguisher

is a "quick check" to give rea-
sonable assurance that a fire
extinguisher is available, fully
charged and operable.
The value of an inspection
lies in frequency, regularity and
thoroughness with which it is
conducted. The frequency will
vary from hourly to monthly,
based on the needs of the situa-
tion. Inspections should always
be conducted when extinguish-
ers are initially placed in service
and thereafter at approximately
30-day intervals.
Maintenance: Fire extin-
guishers should be maintained
at, regular intervals (at least
once a year), or when specifi-
cally indicated by inspection.
Maintenance is a "thorough


check" of the extinguisher. It
is intended to give maximum
assurance that an extinguisher
will operate effectively and
safely.
It includes a thorough exami-
nation and any necessary repair,
recharging or replacement. It
will normally reveal the need
for hydrostatic testing of an
extinguisher.
Please consider joining your
local volunteer fire department
... your community needs you
and your support You may
contact your localvolunteer fire
chief or contact David Harrison,
president of Wakulla County
United Firefighters Association,
at president@wcuffa.org or call
him at 251-0227.

Trout fishing has slowed
down. but some are still being
caught around Turkey Point
Shoals and on Lanark Reef.
Fish the deep troughs off Dog

you may find some big trout

Tortoise Rules Relaxed
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
Executive Director Ken Haddad
recently approved substantial
changes to the agency's permit-
ting guidelines to reduce the
number of gopher tortoises lost
through development.
Effective Tuesday, Aug. 15. the
FWC no longer requires manda-
tory testing for upper respira-
tory tract disease (URTD) when
relocating gopher tortoises off
development sites.
"FWC staff and stakeholders
agree we will improve conserva-
tion benefits for gopher tortoises
by removing the current URTD
testing practices associated with
tortoise relocation." Haddad
said. "Our goal is to encourage
people to relocate gopher tor-
toises, and reduce the number
of tortoises lost on incidental
take sites."
Previously. anyone wishing to
build on property occupied by
gopher tortoises was required
to test them for URTD before re-
locating them off-site. A positive
test of even one gopher tortoise
left only two alternatives: on-site
relocation or incidental take per-
mitting. FWC scientists said the
testing requirement hampered
relocation efforts thtafe impor-
tant to species recovery..
In May, the FWC eased reloca-
tion requirements:by extending
the distance tortoises,could be
relocated from, 50 ti "100 miles
north or south of fie!~ pmtent
site. The move p g'fiowiti-
ers, developers arid c4 iultants

extremely well.
Nobody fished for Spanish
last week, but they should still
be on Dog Island Reef along
with blues and ladyfish. Off-
shore fishing is good for some,
and others are burning a lot
of fuel and coming back with
very few fish. Fifty-five feet and
deeper seems to be the depth
that most fish are coming from
and live pirifish is the primary
bait.
Scott at Jerry's Bait and Tackle
said the mouth of the St. Marks
and East River continues to be
good for reds, Tyler Pearce and
Mark Cann fished live shrimp
around the mouth of the river
and caught eight nice reds and
kept two.
Hunter Haddon fished with
his father. Mike. and they caught
over 30 reds and kept two. This


was Hunter's first redfish, but
I'll bet it won't be his last. They

without .limitation, tobacco itself and
tobacco products that include tobacco
and are intended or, expected for human
use or consumption, including, but not
limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco,
and smokeless tobacco. ,The "Tobacco

but indeterminate. Also, minor revenue
loss to state government is probable, but
indeterminate.

Plan For Mini-Warehouse Units Receives County Approval


Not all of the growth in
Wakulla County is coming to
Crawfordville or the coastal
areas. At a recent Wakulla Coun-
ty Commission meeting, the
Board approved a Small Scale
Comprehensive Plan land use
change amendment and rezon-
ing that will allow Robert and
Debra Poor to develop mini-
warehouse space and boat/RV
storage outside of Sopchoppy
near Curtis Mill Road.
The Poors own 40 acres on
the site but have included only


9.9 in the comp plan amend-
ment. The land use changed
from Rural 1 to Rural 2 to al-
low the commercial zoning for
the project. The zoning change
was from RR-1 residential to C-2
commercial.
Resident Daniel Thompson
objected to.the request asking
commissioners not to allow
commercial development along
U.S. Highway 319 near Ochlock-
. onee River State Park.
Commissioners approved
the comp plan amendment


unanimously. The rezoning
was approved by a 4-1 vote.
Commissioner Howard Kessler
voted in the minority; He stated
his concern for the "haphazard
way of developing the county"
without a master plan.
In other planning and zoning
matters in front of the Wakulla
County Commission recently:
The board approved a site
plan application from W4kulla
Centre, LLC and engineer Bill
Douglas to convert the old Geo
Golf golf ball plant to retail and


office space. The building is
located north of Crawfordville
Son U.S. Highway 319.
Commissioner Ed Brimner
asked Douglas tO create turn
lanes into the facility since it
will be more than 10,000 square
feet in size. Commissioners ap-
plauded the effort to use and
renovate the empty building
Space. Commissioner Kessler
voted against thekmotion.
A site plan application
from Special Touch Construc-
tion and engineer Bill Douglas


was not acted upon after Conm-
missioner Brian Langston made
a motion to approve. Langston
.did not receive a second to his
vote, but commissioners did
not take any action to deny the
request. The applicant is plan-
ning a small strip mall with
two structures on .516 of an
acre south of the Triangle Pawn
Shop in Crawfordville.
A rezoning request was
approved for Elberta Land
Company on 128 acres on U.S.
Highway 319 near Sopchoppy.


Agent Wade Brown said the
development will include 27 lots
and be called "Cypress Glen."
The zoning approval from
RR-5 residential to Planned Unit
Development (PUD) was ap-
proved by a 4-1 vote with Com-
missioner Kessler opposed. The
preliminary plat for the project
was tabled when commission-
ers asked Brown to include turn
lanes on the highway.



"Picture Perfect!"
You already know that a real
estate agent usually accompa-
nies the most serious buyers
when they go to look at homes
for a potential purchase. If you're
planning to list your home in the
upcoming months,: here's some-
thing to consider. The vast ma-
jority of buyers view and com-
pare pictures with their agent
before deciding' which homes
they would like to visit.

Susan
.Council

'IMLS


While they say one shouldn't
judge a book by its cover, it's a
sure bet that those buyers are do-
'ing just that. So what can ,you do
to improve your chances of being
selected for a closer look? Go out
and take a picture!
Now take an objective look.
Are the shrubs, neatly mani-
cured? Is the lawn mowed and
are the edges trimmed? Are there
some eye-catching landscape ele-
ments? Is the exterior pressure-
washed, painted and sparkling?
Is the front porch and entry in-
viting?
Before listing, have a real estate
agent perform a "walk through"
and take photos of the exterior.
Follow suggestions 'for improve-
ments, and you'll soon be enjoy-
ing pany visits from potential
bu\er.; and then a "picture per-
'ect" -ale!

County Offers Another Workshop


Hoping to create a better
working agenda for board meet-
ifigs. the Wakulla County Com-
mission recently held an hour-'
long workshop to discuss the
details of how to develop a pro-
cedure for creating the agenda.
The result was the the setting of
a second workshop, which will
be held in September.
The second workshop will
allow additional time for
residents to speak about the.
agenda, Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon said. The next meet-
Sing on the subject will be held
Thursday, Sept. 7, at 5 p.m.
Board members followed a


draft document submitted by
Commissioner Ed Brimner and
made a few suggestions for
changes. Brimner said he would.
tweak the document before the
Sept. 7 workshop..
One of the new items is a
ban on ",sticks or posts" on
signs or placards brought into
the board chambers. Brimner
said residents can bring signs,
but posts and sticks on the
signs pose a safety threat.
Probably the most important
issue, said Brimner, involves
County staff providing enough
background information on is-
sues for commissioners to feel


comfortable voting on them. He
added that County Administra-
Stor Joe Blanchard has attempted
to increase the supporting infor-
mation for the board.
Brimner also wants to re-
serve time at the beginning
of the meetings to recognize
outstanding staff in front of the
Comcast cameras.
Resident Dana Peck said the
board should stick to Roberts
Rules of Order rather than 'a
combination of Roberts Rules
and board ideas. Being incon-
sistent raises a suspicion that
the board "is not committed to
a democratic government and

fairly and remove the word

ties of the chairman.
